We will have all of our fully stocked aid stations as usual. Please use these stations and enjoy them. Water will be available at the first stop on Mirror Lake Dr. and then the rest will have gels, energy bars, fruit, water, Gatorade, ice, chips, pretzels, etc. Please try to hold your trash and just deposit it at the aid stations to keep our beautiful town clean!
